The two sides plan to hold a summit at the end of the month in the resort of Mar Lago, US President Donald Trump, where he is expected to host his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, to reach a formal agreement.

According to sources, President Trump is pushing for an agreement, although US Trade Representative Robert Lieberman has pressed China to make further concessions.

According to unnamed sources, Beijing is ready to cut protection measures on agricultural and chemical products, automobiles and other US products, while Washington is considering removing most tariffs on Chinese goods.
